Norway Pond Festival  Singers in concert Sunday

 The Norway Pond Singers will give a concert Sunday at the Hancock Meeting House.

The Norway Pond Singers will give a concert Sunday at the Hancock Meeting House.

The Norway Pond Festival Singers will present “Freedom of Expression,” a concert at the Meeting House on Sunday at 4 p.m.

The two centerpieces of the concert include an extended work about Paul Revere’s famous ride called “I Will Ride,” composed by Australian Paul Jarman.

This work is a fitting celebration to the Meeting House steeple, containing Paul Revere’s bell, that has been freshly painted.

Also to be performed is “Twelve Opposites,” composed by Caroline Mallonee, which sets New Hampshire poet Richard Wilbur’s poetry to music. Mallonee is a former MacDowell fellow, a teacher at the Walden School and a frequent visitor to the region.

The concert will also include “The Book Report,” a song about the difficulty of expressing yourself, from the musical “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.”

Surprise guests will be coming in to play the roles of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Schroeder and Linus.

The concert is an hour long with no intermission, and is free to the public. As always, donations at the door are appreciated.
